The cost of this membership for residents aged 60+ is £75.00 for the full year.
Being physically active is good for our mind and body. It also gets us out, into the community, socialising with others and generally making the most of life. To be as healthy as possible older adults are recommended to have 150 minutes of moderate activity each week.
Being active on a regular basis can:
- Lower the risk of developing health problems and help manage and reduce progression of existing conditions. This includes back pain, chronic pain, osteoporosis and mental ill-health.
- Aid balance and muscle strength to reduce the risk of falls.
- Improve confidence and overall quality of life.
Activage members get access to:
- 9 swimming pools
- 19 fitness gyms
- 9 health suites
- Racquet sports
- Fitness classes
- East Kilbride Ice Rink
- Libraries activities
